“We’re in the build up and we will continue to do what we have to do to win the election,” he added.

“My message to Nigerians is that we should come out en masse when it is time in February to vote for a balanced ticket that reflects the characteristics of this country, that will provide leadership that will stabilise this country and revive our economy and foster more of national unity and that is Atiku Abubakar and Governor Okowa.”

Tambuwal hinted that the party was expecting a rousing and large crowd at the Lagos State Presidential Campaign in Lagos on Monday.
